How to be humanitarian: the importance of collaboration and service with Tobie Spears
Show Notes

I'm thrilled to share with you the latest episode of our podcast, where we had the pleasure of hosting Tobie Spears, the founder and director of the nonprofit Be Humanitarian. Their mission:  

To live a life full of meaningful work, building cherished connections, healing sorrows, sprinkling smiles, and sharing hope. 

Tobie's passion for making a difference is truly inspiring, and her story resonated deeply with me, given my personal connections to Latin America.

Here are some key takeaways from our conversation:

  1. The Birth of Be Humanitarian: Tobie's journey to Guatemala began with a sense of adventure and a desire to experience something new. She found a community in need and a calling to make a difference. Her organization now provides meals, educational support, and income opportunities to a remote Guatemalan community.
  2. The Impact: Be Humanitarian started small, but its impact has been profound. From providing breakfast three days a week to needy children, they now serve thousands of monthly meals. During the pandemic, they even provided dinner boxes, demonstrating their commitment to meeting basic needs.
  3. Empowerment and Collaboration: Tobie's vision goes beyond charity. She aims to empower the local people to create a sustainable system for themselves. The organization prioritizes collaboration and involvement from the community, ensuring that the parents and children in their program have a say in how things are done.
  4. The Challenges: Guatemala is one of the most malnourished countries in the world, with a stark divide between the wealthy and the impoverished. Tobie and I discussed the financial challenges families face and the difficult choices they have to make between basic needs like food and education.
  5. Service Vacations: Be Humanitarian offers unique adventures and service vacations. These trips are humanitarian-based and include activities like fair trade education and hands-on service in the community. It's a different kind of vacation that leaves a lasting impact on both the participants and the community.

Tobie's story is a testament to the power of compassion and the difference one person can make. I hope you'll join me in supporting Be Humanitarian's mission and consider tuning in to our podcast to hear more about Tobie's incredible journey.

Remember, even a small contribution can make a big difference. As Tobie shared, just $37 a month can provide a child with meals and educational support in Guatemala. That's less than the cost of a few fast-food meals!
